Merb app slice providing centralized management for Chef

Chef is a systems integration framework and configuration management system written in Ruby. Chef provides a Ruby library and API that can be used to bring the benefits of configuration management to an entire infrastructure. The Chef Server is a Merb application that provides centralized storage and distribution for recipes stored in "cookbooks," management and authentication of client nodes and node data, and search indexes for that data. The chef-server-slice package contains all the goods for the Chef Server and is started with the chef-server program. This package contains the Merb slice for the chef-server.

More information about apt-get remove

Advanced Package Tool, or APT, is a free software user interface that works with core libraries to handle the installation and removal of software on Debian, Ubuntu and other Linux distributions. APT simplifies the process of managing software on Unix-like computer systems by automating the retrieval, configuration and installation of software packages, either from precompiled files or by compiling source code.

apt-get is the command-line tool for handling packages, and may be considered the user's "back-end" to other tools using the APT library.

apt-get remove is identical to install except that packages are removed instead of installed. Note that removing a package leaves its configuration files on the system. If a plus sign is appended to the package name (with no intervening space), the identified package will be installed instead of removed.
